Permissions and credits
*Thanks to RussianDood  adaptations introduced in 0.07 & 0.09
-for correcting the progression.xml so that it works
-noticing a case sensitive error in sounds
-loot table fixes
- description keys for schematics
-created a localization file and batch script to get them in game

*Thanks to Elucidus for allowing me to use the Impact Wrench as part of this mod and looking forward to adding some unique attachments meant for it!

*Thanks to Mayic for catching the error in my localization.bat that was removing the engineering entries from the vanilla localization file. This is now fixed, if you used this particular .bat file you may have noticed no entries in your engineering related items and abilities. Validate your steam folder and than redo your .bat files. I had used the word Engine rather than modEngine so all entries with Engine were being removed when running this .bat.

*Another thankyou to Mayic for letting me add his Drill Gun the motor tools mix! Would love to hear ideas on how to balance the drill gun and the impact wrench to make them compliment each other!

Contents of mod
Adds the 8 slots to the Chainsaw and Auger at tier 6 (***note this will not update your existing items and requires them to either be crafted or found new).
Quality damage bonus is added to the tools.

A recipe to upgrade the vanilla nail gun to a quicker version called the Quicker Fixer Upper
modEngineTurbo1 = 10% increase in speed
modEngineTurbo2 = 25% increase in speed
modEngineTurbo3 = 50% increase in speed

modGasTank1 = 25% increase in gas tank size
modGasTank2 = 50% increase in gas tank size
modGasTank3 = 100% increase in gas tank size

modReserveGasTank1 = 25% increase in gas tank size
modReserveGasTank2 = 50% increase in gas tank size
modReserveGasTank3 = 100% increase in gas tank size

modMotorToolExtension1 = 10% increase in range
modMotorToolExtension2 = 25% increase in range
modMotorToolExtension3 = 50% increase in range

modDiamondTip1 = 10% increased block damage but -100% damage to wood
modDiamondTip2 = 25% increased block damage but -100% damage to wood
modDIamondTip3 = 50% increased block damage but -100% damage to wood

modMotorToolSilencer = makes it so you can now mine and chop in peace. 

modChainsawTemperedFrame1 = 25% increase in degradation max and lower degradation per use
modChainsawTemperedFrame2 = 50% increase in degradation max and lower degradation per use
modChainsawTemperedFrame3 = 75% increase in degradation max and lower degradation per use
(***CAUTION the tempered frame is a permanent attachment and cannot be removed from the mod slot)

Future of the mod
1. Work towards balance - fun, and challenge
2. Changing recipes to reflect their nature to make it more immersive
3. Test the car battery in items.xml effect_group ModSlots to see if the batteries can be affected by a mod_item and if that can carry into the battery bank
4. Discover if a wider auger can be built and how those attributes work
5. Carbon Alloy Framing for the motortools to increase durability related values
6. Figure out how the tools affect the heatmap and if it can be separated from the sound values or if those are intrinsically linked. If it is separate and there is a heat specific value than a heat sink could be developed to soak up the heat rather than the Noise Dampner doing both.
7. Considering making a Reserve Fuel Tank attachment that would allow for a 2nd fuel tank attachment for even more fuel. 
8. Schematic icons built.
9. Recipes built/balanced and added into the progression tables.
10. loot.xml additions so the added items can be distributed.
11. Nail gun additions
12. Impact Wrench unique mods.
13. Get a lawnmower icon in and see if something in hold position could be a good candidate for a future model addition of a lawnmower.
